Listeners of Bruce Whitfield’s The Money Show may be familiar with Julia, the young savings superhero.
Personal Financial Advisor Warren Ingram – a Thursday regular – introduced her to Whitfield a few years back.
When she was first featured she earned about R1 million per year, yet drove a Corsa Lite.
She has since upgraded ever so slightly to a Toyota Etios.
Julia, by that time already a multimillionaire, invested a third of her income.
As her salary increased she invested more.
She could afford to, but refrained from moving into a big house or buying a fancy car.
She avoided the trap of meeting her improved income with increased expenditure.
Julia has since become a mother – is she still a supersaver?
